Checkr Forward, our first annual conference, kicked off yesterday at SF Jazz, bringing together customers, partners, and industry experts.

This year’s event had something for everyone, from best practices around hiring to guidance on the changes happening in the world of compliance. We ended the day with some words of wisdom and inspiration from our keynote speaker, Mj Rodriguez, the lead actress of the Emmy-winning Pose on FX.

Join us as we walk through some of the best moments from the conference: 

We kicked off the conference with a welcome reception at Checkr HQ.

Attendees started the day with a delicious breakfast and group conversations with our speakers.

Our CEO and co-founder, Daniel Yanisse took the stage for our morning keynote, bringing together speakers from Lyft, Compass Group, and Postmates.

We hosted a powerful re-entry simulation across the street from SFJazz, which gave attendees the opportunity to walk in the shoes of those just re-entering our society.

We hosted a cast of star speakers from leading companies, including Lyft, Uber, Postmates, Thumbtack, Compass Group, Stripe, Onfidio, TalentBurst, and DoorDash, among others.

Attendees shared their thoughts on sessions and the conference in real-time throughout the day.

Attendees got Instagram ready in front of our flower wall.

The conference closed out with a Q&A with Mj Rodriguez, who urged us to build connections with those around us.

A big thank you to everyone who played a part in making our first conference such a success! We can't wait to see you at Checkr Forward 2020.
